Bill 21: An Act to Protect Patients received Royal Assent on November 18, 2018, and introduced significant amendments to the Health Professions Act (HPA), providing specific guidance and requirements to regulated health professions for preventing and addressing sexual abuse and/or sexual misconduct towards patients by regulated members. These amendments, along with the College’s Standards of Practice (see Standard Area 5.0) and Code of Ethics, provide specific direction to regulated members for professional conduct and establishing and maintaining professional boundaries with patients.

The Alberta Federation of Regulated Health Professions (AFRHP) is a group of 29 health regulatory Colleges that work together to fulfill the same mandate – “to regulate our respective professions in the public interest.” The AFRHP has launched a new educational course to help regulated health professionals understand and comply with Bill 21.
